On Sunday, March 12, March Madness officially kicked off with the announcement of the brackets!  The  Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament kicks off on Tuesday, but really starts heating up on Tuesday the 16th.  The four No.1 seeds belong defending champion Villanova, North Carolina, Kansas and Gonzaga.   There wasn’t too much in the way of controversy as brackets were announced outside of the Duke and North Carolina rivalry playing out on the bracket.  Duke was given a two seed.  That had a lot of fans scratching their heads as Duke had a better record over North Carolina.

Northwestern earned their first ever invitation to the tournament.

Selection Committee chairman Mark Hollis said after the bracket was revealed, “By far, I can say with 100 percent certainty that this is the most competitive bracket I’ve seen [in his five years on the committee].”
